At Home Abortions
CONSIDERING AN AT HOME ABORTION?
Since Brett Kavanaugh became a Supreme Court Justice and the mounting anti-choice measures many states are attempting to pass, people have questions. ABORTION IS STILL LEGAL. And Northland is here to provide compassionate, safe abortion care with the dignity and respect you deserve. We are here for you.
AT HOME ABORTIONS: HOME “REMEDIES”, ABORTION PILLS, AND OLD WIVES TALES
More and more, politicians and anti-choice laws are standing in the way of clear access to safe, affordable methods of abortion care. Because of this, we are hearing of women resorting to methods that may be dangerous, ineffective, or life threatening. We know that more women are attempting to buy pills online to end their pregnancies; however, when you buy pills from the Internet you do not know what you are really getting. While rare, if you experience an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy in which the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus) and it is not properly diagnosed and treated by a physician, it could be life threatening.
There are also stories and tales about vitamins, herbs, supplements, spices, and foods that can be taken to end a pregnancy at home. These remedies have not been proven to be safe and effective by medical experts, and can delay your access to effective earlyabortion. When these “solutions” fail to work, some at home remedies can cause severe bleeding or other potentially serious complications, and never end a pregnancy.
If you are searching for abortion pills online to buy, you can get them from us. Our clinics offer safe, compassionate, and confidential care. The abortion pill, prescribed by a physician, is a safe way to have a self-managed abortion at home. It is in your best interest to be seen by a physician who is an expert in abortion care.
IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT TRYING AN ABORTION AT HOME, PLEASE CALL US
Northland Family Planning is able to care for you safely, legally, and effectively at one of our three Michigan locations in the metro Detroit area. For women who wish to end their pregnancy without surgery we offer the FDA-approved medical abortion to women who are 10 weeks pregnant or less. We have funding available for those women who face a financial burden and qualify for financial assistance. If the pregnancy has stopped growing, we offer miscarriage management as well. We care about you so please call us and have a conversation.
I HAVE ALREADY TRIED TO CAUSE AN ABORTION AT HOME, WHAT DO I DO?
If you have already tried home remedies and are nervous or scared about what might be happening or you don’t think it worked—it’s OK. Call our office; you can be honest with us. Schedule an appointment for one of our physicians to evaluate your situation and discuss all of the options available to you.
We understand, we don’t judge, and we are here for you.
Please note that although no criminal laws for self-induced abortion exist in Michigan today, that can change at any time.
